    Yes supposedly if it is GSM unlocked then it should work with any sim card. I bought a cell phone on ebay that was unlocked and it does work with our plan.

    Yes, you can use it with any provider.

    The only exception is if was previously reported stolen. You will not be able to use it in the country where the theft was registered
